Game logic

Objects (like balloons) fly up from the bottom of the board. They pop by breaking into particles when stepped on. Players hit moving objects and score points. Depending on the configuration of the template, other elements may be attached to the flying objects, which fall down after the flying object pop. The fun can end after the set time of the game.

Ideas for using the Balloon Pop template

Balloon popping is one of my favourite games. Depending on the selected effect that appears after hitting an object (your own graphics or one of the default effects), you can create applications with various applications and character (humorous, informative, entertaining).

Fun and Education - Replace the default objects in the template with graphics of your favourite cartoon characters, numbers, colours or letters. Encourage children to actively play with movement.

Events and Entertainment - Replace the default background in the template with graphics with the name or visual identity of your event. Show funny elements or humorous slogans on the effects graphics. Match the graphics of flying objects to the event.

Promotion and Advertising - Replace the default objects in the template with your brand logo. Use a background with your corporate identity.
